the clinton administration when we heard a lot from the dlc about third way. and president clinton himself used the phrase, "the third way." and the idea was, in a boom time when we didn't have such high unemployment, you could make this argument that somehow the interests of the very, very rich were the same as the interests of main street. that's an argument that just does not fly with the occupy generation. and i found this wall street journal editorial hilarious in some ways. because there's no way that you can credibly make the case to general xors and millennials they should be more concerned about the national debt than personal debt, particularly student loan debt which was exploded to $1.3 trillion today. people, young people today, know that their concern is not the tax rate that they're going to pay as they get older. their concern is getting a job at all. and getting some relief from what wall street has engineered. this incredibly unfair debt burden. and it's no accident that the board of third way is comprised of wall street bankers and that the policies they are pushing are

clinton's rise to power. when you look at bill clinton coming to power after three disastrous elections where the democratic party was viewed as unelectable by a lot of the country, it was fueled by ideas, by platform, by a vision of where to lead to reinvent the party. and you see the great deficit in those remarks by the speaker that the congressional wing of the republican party has in the eyes of the american people, absolutely bereft of ideas. i'm not a fan of the affordable care act, but my party has no solutions to deal with what's a real issue. no working person in this country, for example, should lose their house, go bankrupt, because their kid breaks their leg or their spouse gets leukemia, so republicans, who were once the party of ideas, during the regan era, through the 1990s along with president clinton, we have collapsed as far as our ability to be policy entrepreneurs. that's the great challenge if we're to be successful in 2016, to have candidates to break away, put forward ideas about economic growth, health care, and ideas that americans are focused on. >> jonathan,
